Vol. 1.
Scope and Content note

The first volume of this manuscript includes roughly two hundred pages of family history and genealogical information, including the etymology of the surname of White, and a tracing of the Barclay White Branch of the family back to the mid seventeenth century, in London, England. For each subsequent generation, White writes character sketches of his direct ancestors, including photographs and sketches of portraits of various family members, and the houses or towns in which they lived. After summarizing his family history, Barclay begins the autobiographical portion of the manuscript, in which he describes his early life in Philadelphia, his education, his marriage and family life, his second marriage, and his work as the Superintendent of Indian Affairs for the Northern Superintendency in Omaha, Nebraska. The end of this volume includes his travel to Utah and meeting with Brigham Young, and begins a short biographical account of Brgiham Young.

Vol. 2.
Scope and Content note

This volume continues the biographical account of Brigham Young's life, and describes his trip to California from Utah, and the journey back to Omaha. This volume also includes extracts of correspondence related to White's position as the Superintendent of Indian Affairs.
